Day Trips from Visalia
Now that summer is here and the kids are out of school, it’s the perfect time to go on some family adventures. Don’t let the summer slip away without taking one—or all!—of these day trips from Visalia, California.
A trip to Monterey, California is just over a three-hour drive from Visalia. This is the longest drive to make an appearance on Nissan of Visalia’s list of destinations, and it’s worth it. Making trips of this length or longer are an easy feat in a Nissan sedan that will sip gas and keep you comfortable along the way.
Monterey is a beautiful and intimate setting for a day trip. Take a walk around the town to stretch your legs after the drive or visit the aquarium or one of the city’s museums. After you’ve grabbed some lunch or dinner, hop back into your Nissan sedan to make the famous 17 Mile Drive. This scenic route runs through Pebble Beach and Pacific Grove and is beautiful at sunset or any time of day.
Sierra National Forest
This gorgeous National Forest is just a 20-minute drive from Visalia. Your Nissan sedan has plenty of cargo space for tents and other camping gear, and with campsites as beautiful as those in the Sierra Nevada you might want to make a weekend of it. Enjoy plenty of outdoor activities like hiking, fishing, and watersports, and then get dinner in one of the small, nearby towns like Oakhurst.
Sequoia National Park
Sequoia National Park is another must-see California park, known for its majestic, towering sequoia trees. Participate in one of the ranger programs, explore the Crystal Cave or just enjoy a drive through the park in your Nissan sedan. Your Nissan is the perfect size for stopping off at the scenic viewpoints, so bring your camera and be ready to be blown away by some of the state’s most picturesque sights.
